Vauxhall: A Little History Walk

Explore the area with one of Vauxhall Civic Society’s expert guides. Free to Vauxhall Civic Society members; £2 donation from non-members. Meet at 3pm, outside Starbucks by Vauxhall Tube station. Penny Howard leads a walk back through time, from Vauxhall’s origins in the forced marriage of a teenage widow and mother to a brutal mercenary, through to the heyday of Vauxhall Gardens, the grime of the industrial revolution and then on to the present day of spies, bridges and the great pineapple controversy.

Duration: 2 hours
